Cheek Dimples

Cheek Dimples

Found on both sides of the mouth for some of us, cheek dimples are considered attractive and ‘genetically dominant’. Around 37 percent of the population are having cheek dimples (in a study of 2300 people).

Cheek dimples are caused by a change in a particular facial muscle called zygomaticus major. Genetics too play an important part for a face to have dimples, which can develop over a lifetime and also disappear.

Ever noticed jaw click on opening your mouth wide? Here's why

If you’re experiencing a jaw popping sensation every time you chew, talk or yawn, it may be from your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Jaw popping refers to a clicking sound from the jaw each time it is engaged, which can be followed by sensations of pain.

The jaw popping sensation can be the result of trauma, dislocation or a displaced disc. Clenching, grinding, or chewing gum too often can also cause pain and tightness within the facial muscles, especially if there are missing or misaligned teeth.

A little wisdom on wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth are more formally known to dentists as third molars , These teeth were named as wisdom teeth as they make their appearance usually between 17 and 25 yrs of age, when a young person might be pursuing wisdom with higher education

­The third molars have the nasty habit of becoming impacted at a funny angle or in an unexpected location. With all the history of painful extraction, you probably won't miss your wisdom teeth once they're gone, because we don't use them anymore. But if we don't need them, why do these teeth come in at all? Is it possible they may eventually disappear?

Flat Foot: Introduction
  • Also known as fallen arches,
  • No arch in feet or one that is very low.

Usually, there is a gap beneath the inner part of the foot when a person stands, as the arch raises off the ground slightly.

Flat feet only need treatment if-

  1. cause discomfort.
  2. indicate an underlying disorder
  3. lead to pain elsewhere in the body.

*Some people appear to have a very low arch or no arch without ever experiencing problems.
